So, my mom's boyfriend is sending me and mom on an all-expenses-paid trip to Savannah, GA next spring for two whole weeks! Why, you may ask? Because we're both obsessed with Paula Deen. Not sure of the dates yet, but it's something to look forward to.
So, has anyone ever been there? Any recommendations on things to see, where to stay, where to eat?
Somethings are a given. We'll definitely be eating at Lady and Sons
probably way more than once if Mom has her way. Fine by me, except they don't accept reservations and of course, it's madhouse there (I hate, hate, hate crowds).
We'll also be going to Tybee Island
right outside of Savannah. Nothing like eating seafood right on the water.
And let's not forget Ghost Tours
. Yup, I'm dragging Mom on one of those ~ it's not her thing, but I'm still dragging her along :-) (Remind me to tell you the story of the ghost tour I took here in Virginia City a few years ago ~ was a little freaky).
Also the Civil War Tour
. looks awesome to me. I'm a huge history buff and love to just be in the places where history occured. The air and the feel of those places are just different for me ~ almost magical. As part of this, we'll also be doing the Historic Homes Walk
and taking a look at the old antebellum mansions.
Last, but not least, Hilton Head
is only an hour away, so we'll be traveling there for a day trip.
So any thoughts, suggestions, ideas? I sure would love the input ~ I'm planning the whole thing. Mom forgets I'm not a travel agent anymore.
